Here are the details of your home learning tasks for the week.  It would be great if you could do some of these and let us know what you've done.

 

You might want to follow this timetable to organise yourselves this week, but this is only a guide - you may choose to organise your working in another way.  There is no expectation that you will complete all this work, but it is all available to you to help with your learning.

You will also find all the tasks in the google classroom:

www.classroom.google.com

In google classroom, you can send us pictures of your work or any word / google documents you might create.  We look forward to seeing some.

If you find that you haven't been assigned your maths work in google classroom, let me know - I might have missed your name.

   

In addition to the above, here are a few suggestions for some other things you might like to do this week.

 

Weather Diary

Mindfulness Activity

Create your own weather diary and make a note of the changing weather. Spring is an exciting season which can see anything from snow to sun-bathing. What will Spring 2020 be like?

See separate sheet for instructions.  

Local artist, Caroline Misselbrook has kindly sent us a seahorse repeating pattern which can be printed out, coloured and stuck together to make one large picture (4 copies to be printed to make the large picture).

See separate attachment.

Art from Mrs Milne

Science from Mrs Arnold

This week’s fun Art@home challenge is to create a portrait of a family member (or a self-portrait if you prefer) in the style of the great artist Picasso!  No materials needed other than paper and some felt-tipped pens or colouring pencils.  Curious?  Check the Art@Home blog post for inspiration.

Volcano Lemons. Make your very own volcano! You will need a lemon, baking soda, food colouring (optional) and washing up liquid. See the blog on the 27th April for the instructions.
